It really seems strange to me that in America it appears normal not to do any calculus until Uni, since in Australia basic calculus is taught in schools (in my state, it is taught in the main maths class that over half of all students takes), and is used in physics and engineering courses from the start of first year. Given how much my first year physics courses relied on calculus, the system really seems odd.
